Sheehan studied under George Gabin, who paints in a tight and traditional style. There, he learned the technique of American Tonalism, the contrast between light and dark, and adopted the style as his own. He became fascinated by the subtle tones and chords of light on landscape during transitional moments: dusk, dawn, or the time immediately before or after storms when small amounts of light and color in an otherwise somber environment produce piercingly beautiful effects. “My goal is to have the painting emanate light,” the artist explains. “This is why the areas of shadow are so important, for it is from them that this emanation proceeds.”
